Abstract
During the last years, several Cm and Cf isotopes have been studied by our research group in the frame of a systematic investigation of gas emission characteristics in ternary fission. Here we report on new results on the energy distribution and the emission probability of 3H, 4He and He particles emitted in the spontaneous ternary fission of 250Cf (Eexc = 0 MeV) and in the neutron induced ternary fission of 249Cf (Eexc = 6.625 MeV). Both measurements were performed using suited and well-calibrated Δ E-E telescope detectors, at the IRMM (Geel, Belgium) for the spontaneous fission and at the very intense neutron beam PF1b at the Institute Laue-Langevin (Grenoble, France) for the neutron induced fission measurement. In this way, the existing database can be enlarged with new results for Z = 98 isotopes, which is important for the systematic investigation. Moreover, the investigation of the `isotope couple' 249Cf(n,f)-250Cf(SF), together with corresponding data for other isotopes, will yield valuable information on the influence of the excitation energy on the particle emission probabilities.
